My Young Friends:

I look forward to youth the real makers of Pakistan. Do not be


exploited and do not be misled. Create amongst yourselves
complete unity and solidarity. Set an example for what youth can
do. Your main occupation should be in fairness to yourself in
fairness to your parents in fairness to the state to devote your
attention to your studies. If you fritter away your energies now you
will always regret. After you leave the portals of your Universities
and Colleges then you can play your part freely and build yourself
and the state.

University of Karachi is untiringly struggling to promote higher education in the region. Due to this
fact, University of Karachi stands in the list of top 200 Universities in Asia. Nevertheless, this journey
of rapid development does not limit itself to the current international ranking only; we are rather
trying very hard to take our Alma Mater to the list of top ten universities in theWorld.In this relation,
extensive developmental work is being carried out in every sphere of the University,be it academic or
administrative.
Our teaching and research is on a par with the international standards and address issues that have a
global impact. Despite acute financial crises, the facilities that the University provides make the
learning process easier and interesting. In short, we are fervently trying to raise a well-educated,
professionally skilled and technically advanced new generation in Pakistan.
It is a matter of pride for me that the name of University of Karachi is a guarantee for absolute success
and leadership in every field. This has been possible because of its alumni who are serving at
outstanding positions at all levels of societal and professional brilliance.
As far as the admissions 2016 are concerned, I must say that we follow very strict merit criteria for

Faculty of Law

School of Law
Introduction
Education is the foundation of knowledge and
knowledge is light which shuns the darkness of
ignorance. Legal education is also a vital part of that
phenomenon as through this type of education also a
civilized and organized society comes into existence.
Legal education is still very popular and bound to
become so with job opportunities of law persons
increasing consequent upon economic liberalization
and globalization of legal services. However the
present organization of legal education is not able to
cater to the needs and demands which are changing
from time to time. With this end in view the
University of Karachi has established its School of
Law with the following aims and objectives.
To train law students in the real dynamics of what
will be the real relevant decisional structure to
become adept influencing their outcome and in
assisting other people in changing goals and
developing strategies to achieve these goals in
diverse contexts.
To give quality education in law.
To provide sound knowledge and training in the
legal theory and practice to fulfill the requirements
for the legal profession and administrative jobs.
To equip the law students with specialized
legal studies relating to commercial, business and
public affairs so that a product of such education
would be able to contribute towards national
development and social change in a much more
constructive manner.

Facilities

room lectures and little on moot courts and court


visits etc does not meet the requirement of the
modern education. Therefore for the development of
scientific temperament of the students empirical
approach is being followed in the Faculty by giving
due importance to clinical legal education.

Career Opportunities
The demand for lawyers with expertise will continue
to grow with the passage of time. The legal field is
constantly redefining itself by adding new areas to the
practice. For every job in law, analytical ability,
research, writing skills, and the knowledge of the
basic differences in the world's legal systems as well as
their political and cultural contexts is essential.
The available career paths for a lawyer can be broken
down into law firms, federal government, corporate
counsel, international organizations and non-profit
groups.
Note: The terms and conditions imposed by the
Pakistan Bar Council as amended from time to
time shall be binding on all students.

Department of

Biotechnology
Introduction
The department was established in 1996 with an
objective of imparting quality education in the
multidisciplinary field of Biotechnology at both
undergraduate and postgraduate levels.
Biotechnology is defined as the application of
biological systems to basic and technical and industrial
processes. These processes are based on the use of
some form of biological catalyst in the conversion of a
substrate to a desired product. These biological
catalysts are simple as enzymes or highly complex
microorganisms or eukaryotic cells.
Biotechnology includes a wide range of activities.
Each activity is associated with its own starting
material (bacterial, fungal, yeast, plant or animal cells
or enzymes), technical manipulation (cell fusion, cell
or enzyme immobilization, genetic engineering, etc.),
processes (continuous and batch fermentation), and
scale (small to very large), which are unique to that
activity.

Career Opportunities
Biotechnology can be viewed as a group of useful,
enabling technologies with wide and diverse
applications. It has large, highly profitable, modern
industrial outlets of great value to society e.g.. DNA
recombinant technology, most revolutionary branch
of the modern science and have a profound impact on
medicine, contributing to the diagnostics and cure of
hereditary detects and serious disease and the
development of new biopharmaceutical drugs and
vaccines for human and animal use. It also deals with
the modification of microorganisms, plants and farm
animals for improved and tailored food production
and to increased opportunities for environmental
remediation and protection.
The field is further exemplified with the industrial
production of enzymes like proteases, amylases,
celluloses and lipases, industrial manufacturing plants
for milk and milk products, alcohols, organic acids,
antibiotics, vitamins, growth promoting factors and
monoclonal antibodies.

together with two subsidiary subjects in other
departments of the University. Starting with the
diversity of plant life, an outline of the classification of
plants, their identification, structure and function, it
continues with genetic basis of variation and
evolution of plants.
In the 3rd and 4th years, instead of subsidiary subjects,
they are required to study major subjects within the
field of Botany. In M.Sc. Final, the students specialize
in one of the branches of Botany, which include:
Applied Botany, Mycology & Plant Pathology, Plant
Physiology, Plant Ecology, Phycology & Marine
Botany and Plant Taxonomy.

The department of Botany has developed a


productive research and teaching group in plant
sciences. Members of the faculty are working in many
specialized fields of plant sciences and are
endeavouring to enhance our knowledge of the plant
world. Following are the specific research areas:
1. Classical Taxonomy, Chemosystematics and
Cytogenetics.
2. Plant Anatomy and plant Tissue Culture
3. Phycology and Marine Botany
4. Mycology, plant pathology and Fungal
Biotechnology
5. Plant Physiology
6. Plant Ecology and Environmental pollution
Members of the teaching staff have completed more
than 50 research projects with the support of national
and international funding agencies. Currently several
research projects are in progress. More than 2500
research papers have been published in journals of
international repute by the teachers and researchers of
the Department. The Pakistan Journal of Botany and

Chemistry
Introduction
Chemistry is a noble central science which helps to understand
the origin of life and suggest ways to use non-living things for
giving comfort to life. To train the young generation and to direct
their approach to accomplish this task easily, it is necessary to
make the students understand the principles underlying the
composition, structure and properties of substances along with the
transformation that they undergo. It is therefore obvious that
chemical orientation cannot be imparted in isolation and his to be
developed through a cocktail of physics and biology on one hand
and engineering and applied sciences on the other. The
Department of Chemistry, University of Karachi is well equipped
for pursuing this goal having skilled and proficient faculty, well
equipped laboratories and other infrastructure.
The Department of Chemistry is one of the oldest departments of

Centre of Excellence for

Womens and Gender Studies


Introduction

Specific Research Areas

Since the last 27 years the Centre of Excellence for


Women's Studies (CEWS) has been offering teaching
and research facilities in a friendly environment to
prepare students to act as agents of change. We are
the first to offer M.A. and M. Phil/Ph.D. degree
programs in Pakistan along with BS 4-year and
B.A. (Hons.) 3- year degree program in Women's
Studies. We have an Evening Program for M.A. in
Women's
Studies.
Women's
Studies,
an
interdisciplinary subject, aims to make visible
women's role and contribution towards building a
gender-bias free society for a holistic development of
the nation. We offer a variety of courses to address
the issues of women and gender, both nationally and
internationally. The major focus of our teaching and
research is to bridge the gap between the academia
and women at the grass-root level. Thus, our students
move beyond the Campus and interact with women
to document their every-day lived experiences.

Career Opportunities
As Women's Studies prepares students to act as agents
of social change, therefore, our students are well
equipped and trained to take up jobs that a person
qualified in any other discipline can undertake.
Majority of CEWS graduates are now hired in various
positions by government and non-government
agencies. As one of the requirement of our teaching is
practicum, our students work as interns with various
GOs/NGOs and thus gain practical training and gain
experience. To help our students in their future
careers, we remain engage with the corporate sector.
